Subject:hello and a question
Time:04:26 pm
Hi :) I found this comm via a friend's suggestion - I upgraded to a Droid 3 about ten days ago, and I'm loving it so far. I do have a question, though, and I'm hoping someone here can help me out?

I use my phone to sync with my work email/calendar/etc, and when I got the phone I set it up using the default email app on there. My work has a lock policy, so I created a PIN, and now when my phone locks I have to input a PIN to unlock it and access my stuff.

This is all fairly standard, and no issues so far. But.

Not being thrilled with the default "Email" app, I downloaded TouchDown and configured that to use my work email. It's doing fine so far and I like some of its features, but it also required a PIN. So now I have a PIN when I unlock my phone and another PIN when I try to get into my email, and that seems ridiculous to me. I cleared the defaults on the 'Email' app, but does anyone know how I can get rid of this dual-PIN nonsense?

Thanks much!

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried WaveSecure? If so, what do you like about it/dislike about it? Does anyone know of or use alternatives?

Subject:Chasy's Favorite G1 Apps
Tags:, ,
  • Astrid: A comprehensive To Do application.
  • Twidroid: The best Twitter app for G1!
  • ChompSMS: A nifty SMS app that includes a virtual keyboard. Supposedly, they are developing a virtual T9 keypad for it too. I *love* this app.
  • Android IRC: BEST app for IRC addicts. :) Stays running in the bg - major plus in my book. Doesn't seem to drain battery too badly.
  • Useful Switchers: One-click access to frequently used settings. (i.e. brightness, ringtone, bluetooth, and many more. Also shows battery power remaining. Extremely handy app.)
  • G-Notepad: This is a great notepad app that allows you to transfer .txt, .html and other files back and forth from phone to computer.
  • Flashlight: A simple app but MAN, is it bright! I was impressed. :)
  • DroidSans Virtual Keyboard: A must-have if you just hate having to pop your keyboard open for every little thing.
  • Dark Keys: *THIS* app is a must-have for anyone using the white G1! Hard to see your keys in daylight when that backlight comes on, right? Bind Dark Keys to a quick launch shortcut so you can turn that pesky light off any time! Or turn it back on again...
  • Shazam: One of my very favorite apps - tune it in to a song that's playing and it will tell you what it is. I love this app because I listen to the radio a lot and I'm constantly going "I love this song! I wonder what it is..." I've used this app about ten times so far with 100% accuracy.
  • Wallpaper Set & Save: I like this app because it prevents the G1 from applying that annoying filter to an image before using it as a wallpaper. Translation: Get nice, crisp backgrounds by using this app to set your wallpaper with images on your SD card.
I have lots of other apps that I like - games too - but I'll post about those some other time. :D
